Shenandoah Studio is a new game company founded by industry veterans which hopes to develop a game for the iPad that should be of particular appeal to strategy game fans. They’ve turned to Kickstarter to fund the project and they’re already more than a quarter of the way there.
Battle of the Bulge for iPad is a turn-based game that harkens to classic strategy board games from Avalon Hill and other companies. You assume the role of either Allied or Axis forces, playing by yourself or with another person, either in face-to-face play using one or two iPads or over the Internet. You’ll also be able to play multiple games against different opponents simultaneously.
While artwork is described as nearly final, Shenandoah founder Eric Lee Smith says that much needs to be done, including more development, sound effects and more. The Kickstarter page is rife with graphics showing details of gameplay and a short video from Smith introducing you to the company and the concept behind it, and what makes Battle of the Bulge so special on the iPad.
So if you’re a grognard or a fan of strategy games in general, please visit the Kickstarter page and check it out.
